So, I'm trying to rebuild my mom's old computer for my brother. I can't seem to find the bare INF files for Windows 7 x64 anywhere, and I need them because Win7 doesn't recognize the SATA controller. It's an Acer Aspire M5100 with the stock mobo. I've tried extracting the files from Acer's provided driver files and I couldn't get at them. Does anybody have any idea where to find them?

inb4 Google is your friend. Google has provided me with nothing in this search.

EDIT: Trying to boot from its clean OE install of Windows Vista 32 bit gives me a BCD error of 0xC0000225. I can't get into startup repair, does anybody know where I can download an ISO for the 32 bit Vista startup repair disk? I'm kind of at a loss right now, all things considered. I'm about ready to throw Ubuntu on it and call it a night, but I would like to exhaust all available options.
